Is this sentence legit? For example, Did you watch the movie but forgot the ending? or should I say Did you watch the movie but you forgot the ending?

    Did you watch the movie but forget the ending. Present tense did goes with both.

but is a conjunction. Therefore, there are two sentences here:

Did you watch the movie? and Did you forget the ending? In both these cases, you is the noun, so there is indeed a noun present, and joining them together with but will work in both cases:

Did you watch the movie but you **forget** the ending? correct

Did you watch the movie but **forget** the ending? also correct
